Exclamation Another New Nightly Build Up

Hi guys,

I have uploaded another new nightly build (http://wowuides.wowinterface.com/nb/...v1.0.300.2.msi) that has the following changes:
1.0.300.2: Beta Release 8
+ Added a help window that links directly to WoWWiki. Press F1 on a known function and it will bring up the wiki for that function.
* Reintroduced tooltips for known functions within the editor. Hovering the mouse over the function name will bring up a short summary.
* Updated highlighting definitions for new 1.10 functions.
* Updated apidoc definitions for new 1.10 functions (still very incomplete).
* Filled in more functionality in the Project Explorer, most of the context menus will work now.
+ Added code folding for block comments.
+ Added special region tokens for folding arbrarily defined regions of a file, use --#region [Description] to start, --#endregion to end (note: no space between -- & #)
The main reason for this release is to try and get some help with API documentation. I have several XML files in the \api directory that define some functions in the base Lua and WoW API libraries. These files are used for the tooltip display and the help lookup (WoWWiki defines widget functions as API_{FrameType}_{FunctionName}, to get the available FrameTypes for a given FunctionName, I look it up in the documentation files). The problem is that I just don't have the time to write even the most basic documentation for all the widget functions so that they all have FrameTypes listed, so help does not work for all of them (just LayoutFrame and Frame functions are complete).

You can probably see where this is going... I need help to fill out the wowwidget.xml file! There is a apidoc.xsd file in the installation directory that provides the schema for the file, and wowwiki provides most of the information. The ideal solution would be to write a small app that automatically created the file from looking up the wiki so documentation could be updated as the wiki is, or you could do it by hand like I started to /yawn.

If anyone has the time to update the apidoc files then post here so people know what is being done and it isn't doubled up. You can email the results to me at [email protected] , or post them here.

Thanks
Nulk

GOOOD (or GOD?)

so first,

THIS IS THE HOLY GRAIL
NULKRIS IS OUR GOD
ALL PRY NULKRIS

now the other things,

the new functions (espicially the help function and the region thing) are very good

sometimes the old outlining does not work fully (ir creates for me most times a close thing at the start of the function, but not at the "if"s and "for"s and so on. (picture can be uploaded)

maybe you could at a forward and backwards button to the help "browser"

that's all

go on !!!

I decided to not put in outlining sections for if and for statements as I think it makes it too messy, and it shouldn't really be needed.

Thanks for your support

I downloaded whatever version is on the main download site on this page, it was not version 1.0.300.2.msi.

I got it installed and it was working fine, but was also having the same "nothing in toolbox" problem others were.

I installed the latest from this thread, and now whenever I open this up, it crashes XP style...

EventType : clr20r3 P1 : wowuides.exe P2 : 1.0.300.0 P3 : 44274f6e
P4 : wowuides P5 : 1.0.300.0 P6 : 44274f6e P7 : 297 P8 : 24
P9 : system.missingmethodexception

I believe there was a new dependency introduced with the editor component, to run the program you need to ensure you have the .NET frameworks 1.0, 1.1, and 2.0 installed. Links for 1.1 and 2.0 are provided in the installation instructions, 1.0 can be found at http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en. Please check that all 3 are correctly installed and try again.

Question

Please just zip up the content of the error message and attach to a reply on this thread. Can you state the version of the designer you are using, and what language and version of OS is installed. Thanks.

Thumbs up Issue Resolved ;)

I got the same critical dialog box. Resolved the issue though by taking the following steps:
Everything works perfectly now. As of current, only one error pops up in the message tab in wowuides:
  • (X) attempt to index global `RaidFrame' (a nil value) | Blizzard_RaidUI.lua | Line 11 | Column 1 | Blizzard_RaidUI
This appears to be due to an incomplete reference to the new API changes in the WoW 1.0 patch, and can be completely disregarded for the time being until Nulkris finishes the next release with the completed WoW 1.0 compatible API database. Just a hunch, though. Anyhow, progress appears to be quite excellent. Can't wait to see the end product. Keep up the good work!

Tutorial not working

I also got the crash at startup. The steps above helped to resolve that issue.

To get the feeling for the designer i tried to run the tutorial with both this release and the stable release. (with WoW 1.10)

The designer crashes at step 7 with the following exception as soon as i press OK in the "Select Skin" dialog (BTW: there is no "Basic" or "Default" entry avail in the selection, just en empty dropdown control (it was in the stable release though)).
System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException: Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation. ---> System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

In the stable version the programm did only not crash when i selected "Basic".

I also get the error at the 'Select Skin' dialog, which is empty.

If possible, can you please attach the wowuides.dbg file to any crash reports. Thanks.

Problem

Hi,

I reinstalled my windows some day'S ago also Wow and wowuides (latest nighly) since this I can't get it to work.

It shows up the UI but all the WYSIWYG interface things are not visible I just see the resize bars but no graphics overall.

any Idea ?

thanks alot


EDIT
Problem Solved. The installation of the Bliz FrameXML folder didn't worked successfully so the data in tehre was incomplete. After a reinstall everything works like intended.
